GARY, Ind. - Police said a woman was struck and killed killed while she stood outside her car Saturday morning after she and her husband crashed their vehicle.
Police said a preliminary investigation revealed a 2009 Honda Civic, driven by Roise Abraham, 28, was traveling eastbound on Interstate 80 when Abraham lost control of the vehicle under the Interstate 65 overpass.
The vehicle spun out of control and hit the barrier wall.
Abraham and his wife, Annley Wilson, 28, got out of the Honda, and minutes later Sam Aprahamian, 38, of Valparaiso, lost control of his pick-up truck, a media release said.
The pickup’s driver-side front door and tire hit the passenger rear door of the Honda, causing both vehicles to rotate, hitting the barrier wall and sliding.
Both Abraham and Wilson were struck and thrown over the barrier wall.
Wilson was pronounced dead at the scene from massive blunt force trauma by the Lake County coroner, a media release said.
Police said Abraham was taken to Northlake Methodist Hospital in Gary with non-life threatening injuries.
Aprahamian was also taken to Northlake with the complaint of pain and minor lacerations, police said.
Police said the interstate was mostly wet with scattered slick spots.
